The Black Sunday ...

I was at the Onikan stadium attending the annual sports day function of the Indian Language School where I got the news about the sad and unfortunate demise of the first lady of Nigeria, Mrs Stella Obasanjo, wife of the President of Nigeria. The High Commissioner of India, who was the Chief Guest at the sports meet confirmed the news by formally announcing the news to the capacity packed stadium. I never knew before that complications arising out of a cosmetic surgery can have such fatal implications !

As it was not enough, came the news of Boeing 737 plane crash belonging to Bellview Airlines a few minutes after takeoff from Lagos airport. The plane was carrying about 111 passangers and 8 crew members. There are no survivors.

Incidentally, there has been complete power failure in our locality since Saturday afternoon. I am told there is no power for over 72 hours now in over 50 % of the city. Some coincidence that ! It indeed proved to be a black day.
